I always enjoy your morning "shopping" trips! I found some of the collegiate vinylmations on Disneys online store-they had a Florida State one on sale for $5. Figured it was the perfect gift for my hubby for Christmas, its the perfect combo of him and I!

She has one 'big tooth', but the little one beside it is not cooperating with nature's plan, so it is going to be pulled.

Sounds good. You can just stop by the house, or we can meet up at one of the restaurants by Target. It'll be crazy busy, of course. Are you getting out to shop that day, or will you just be visiting around? Sorry we'll miss Erica, though.

How nice that you and Brooklynn got some together time.
Animal Kingdom is our park, of course! We are both happy just sauntering around that place. I will follow her lead - if she's in the mood to shop, we look at things for forever, and if she's in the mood to see animals, we take our time and enjoy them.

Pop Century has a special place in our hearts. I will miss our Christmas tree in the lobby this year, as well as all the silver ones in the food court windows.

I always say it, but I just have to spend more time there... so much to see!
Yes, there are may details in this park and such a wide variety of things to do. I never feel like I get enough time at any of the parks, though.

I'm not into Vinylmation, but I knew we had some readers who are, and I don't think I had seen that before.

For a short week, it's been exhausting!
It's been a normal week for us. We didn't get out Monday. Short weeks are sometimes more stressful - trying to cram things in - plus you haven't felt good, so I bet you are ready for your weekend and some rest.

Glad you liked the pictures.

I love your pictures -so many cool things that you notice (that apparently I never do!)

Do you have the whole week off for Thanksgiving? I wondered because of your comment of "only two more days". Or maybe you were referring to this week.

I agree with Anita - short holiday weeks still seem longer and more tiring to me.
We come to school two days next week. i am just trying to get through this one.

I am not where I can see the pitures right now, and I don't remember where the truck was. It was for all the special stuff. Not there all the time, as far as I know.

Love the toothless grin!!!! What a nice morning so far
They were having some special stuff this summer. Maybe to see how well things went over to know if it was something they could keep doing at other times? I don't know.

I plan to get a Mickey/Gators college shirt from the Emporium in March. Then next year on college shirt day, I can represent my Mickey 'legally', since we can't wear things like that every day.

This may be a silly question. Is Brooklynn's favorite park AK? It is becoming more and more a favorite of mine. But, I don't know if it will ever overtake MK.

How fun for you to be able to spend some alone time with Brooklynn in AK! I bet she has a bright future ahead of her, working as a CM there.

No, I don't shop on that day. I would end up saying some very un-Disney like words to the rude people I'd inevitably encounter. I know we (me, Seth, my mom - Ray will probably sit this one out and hang out with my grandpa, which he loves to do) are meeting my stepmom, Brooke and Margot for either lunch or breakfast. So it will probably be before or after that. I'll text you. Don't wait around for me though b/c I just don't know what time we're talking about. Sorry to be so vague!

Memom, I always love your pictures! What kind of camera do you have? I need to get a new one, but don't know what to buy. Something easy to use that won't break the bank!

I'd say it ranks second to Magic Kingdom, since she is a huge fan of the triple mountain whammy! Space Mountain is a big favorite of hers, however, she went on Rock-n-Roller Coaster in October, and she now ranks it way up there as one of her favorites. She also likes Everest, which makes her more of a daredevil than me.

I think that when Brooklynn and I go off alone, we are fans of Animal Kingdom, because we get to do it more at our own 'like' pace. When we have the others with us, we need to get on to other attractions or there are potty breaks for Bella or food breaks for John or now Sophie needs to fed, etc. When it's just Brooklynn, I just follow her along doing whatever she wants to do, and we have no other agenda but what she wants to do, so that makes it special and nice.

We will not be at all surprised if she ends up doing the College Program and working at Animal Kingdom.

I love spending one on one time with that girl!

I have zero plans for Friday. I plan not to get in my car and get out into any madness if I do not have to. Except to see you, of course. If you want to just run by the house as you are coming and going, I can just come out to the driveway for a quick hello. You wouldn't have to waste any time on me or get Seth out of the carseat, etc., and is you don't have any time even to do that, don't worry about it. I'll see you if it works, but I know you try to pack a lot into these few days, so don't add me to the stress. A quick hello is fine with me, if it works.

I have a simple point and shoot. I wouldn't know what to do with something I had to manually set. Drew is always after me to get something 'good', but this works fine for me. It is a Canon SX150 IS with 12x zoom. As much as I would love to have something that had more clear cut quality or did all kinds of fancy schmancy stuff, I am happy enough with what I get with this for the trade-off of not having to fidget with a bunch of settings.

Hope that pillow brings you much happiness.

In another 12-14 years, it will be cool to see Brooklynn with her little CM tag doing something she really enjoys, if she decides that the CP is for her. If I am not still around, you will all have to go visit her and cheer her on for me.

I will put up the next round of pictures tomorrow morning.

Glad to hear your observation is over and that it went well. That must be a high weight removed. I never spend enough time in Animal Kingdom. I'll have to fix that on Thursday. I'm really looking forward to being there when it's dark. I've never done that before!

Seems like you and your girls have been very busy lately from the FB pictures I have seen.

Defintely a weight lifted. Now I can relax and enjoy the holidays.

Have a blast at our park! Send us some pictures. So jealous!!!

Brooklynn and I can stand and watch the animals for a long, long time.



We like to watch them walk around, eat, climb, huddle up, or just do whatever they do.







Dancing in the streets of Harambe.




















Surprise. Yeti Kitty was added to the family.



We picked up Fastpasses for Brooklynn and John to have later.



The flags that were recreated (sort of) for Brooklynn's August birthday party.



On to Dino Land.





This also got recreated for the Animal Kingdom party.



One of her favorite things to do in AK.
